If the government cannot explain what happened at Enron and why it was wrong in terms a jury of 12 lay persons can understand, then the government will likely fail to obtain convictions. All the defense has to do is put on a sincere expert, or several sincere experts, that the jury likes. The government always has the burden of proof, and confusion and lack of clarity will only aid the defense.
In describing today’s accelerating changes, the media fire blips of unrelated information at us. Experts bury us under mountains of narrowly specialized monographs. Popular forecasters present lists of unrelated trends, without any to show us their interconnections or the forces likely to reverse them. As a result, change itself comes to be seen as anarchic, even lunatic.
